Low 'n slow: lowriding in New Mexico

Book Cover
Average Rating
Museum of New Mexico Press,
Pub. Date:
This colourful volume is a celebration of the customised low-rider cars that are a vital part of a particular Hispanic subculture in New Mexico. They have amazing custom paint jobs, upholstery, steering wheels, and even murals on the hood, trunk, or sides. Parsons has photographed many of these cars and their owners, capturing them in the New Mexico landscape of adobe churches and wide blue skies. Padilla's text complements the photographs with profiles of the cars' owners and creators, and Arellano's dialogs in low-rider slang give the reader a taste of the lifestyle. The exceptional photographs evoke a uniquely New Mexican experience that will capture the interest of many readers.
